I had to hammer out the broken star wrench tip then progressively drill the head off of the bolt. Once accomplished I could remove the door. I used a standard replacement screw I case I ever have to replace the door again. The manufacturer should use a fastener other than a star head bolt.

1. Safely unplug the dryer. 2. Unconnect the vent hose. 3. Pull it out so you can have room to move around to work on it. I actually in a power chair so I put an old blanket on the floor and laid it face down to work on it. It was extremely dirty so I used a shop vac to clean off the back panel before starting. 4. I took off all the screws and cord cover with a nut driver, used the shop vac again to clean the entire inside. Properly a 1/2 to 1 inch of dust and lint was built up causing a dangerous fire situation for sure. Once clean, take a photos especially of where the electrical connection are. 5 located and removed the two screws holding the element on, used a nut driver and long nose pliers to remove the heat sensor & electrical connections. 6. Dry fit the element before tightening screws to make sure placement is correct then match the holes replace the screws. 7. Using the photos put the heat sensor & electrial wires back on, you may need to use the pliers to push it on tight. Double check everything, Clean back panel inside and out, match up holes replace screws, I actually checked my power cords screws for tightness then replaced cord cover. 8. Replace vent hose if needed or then reattach it and plug it up. You may need to check the dryer barrel by turning the drum around a few times. Should work perfect, you will smell the element a little but it should be ok. Remember clean your dryer inside and out every six months or so to prevent dryer fires.
